Daniel Alfredsson, RW, Senators -- 6th Rd.
Ottawa's first pick in '94 was center Radek Bonk at No. 3 overall, but they found their now-venerable captain at 133, five rounds later after taking defenseman Stan Neckar (29) and goalie Bryan Masotta (81). Alfredsson won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year for 1995-96 and, as of the summer of 2012, had played 16 seasons for the Senators, topping 30 goals in a season four times (including 40-plus twice) while making six All-Star Game appearances. He also won the 2012 King Clancy Trophy for leadership and humanitarian work. Other notables from '94: G Tim Thomas (Nordiques, 9th Rd. at 217), G Evgeni Nabokov (Sharks, 9th Rd. at 219) G Tomas Vokoun (Canadiens, 9th Rd. at 226), and G Marty Turco (Stars, 5th Rd. at 124).
